The International Charter: Space and Major Disasters was activated for floods in northern Bolivia after heavy rain caused the River Acre to overflow on 24 February 2015. The mechanism will provide up-to-date satellite-based information products and maps. The activation was triggered by SIFEM-DNPC on behalf of SINAGER - VIDECI. USGS will handle the project management for this activation.
